'It has to seem supple, but it has to be fought for hard' - said Rita Süssmuth about women in politics. Power and leadership positions are still considered unfeminine, and gender equality in the parliaments and boards of directors of this world still seems like a pipe dream. But: In some countries, young women are coming to power and their leadership style is characterized by empathy and polyphony. Is a new leadership culture glimmering on the horizon? A band of actresses and musicians sings about the downfall of neoliberal feminism, in which women have to perform their way through glass ceilings. Boss/y imagines a new, fair world order in which feminist foreign policy is as natural as closing the gender pay gap. With speeches and music by Waltraud Schoppe, Kate Bush, Julia Gillard, Janelle Monae, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, Kim Boekbinder, Angela Merkel, Pussy Riot, Jacinda Ardern and Annalena Baerbock, among others.
